Electrolyte Changes in Plasma and Urine During Tender Coconut Water Infusion in Dogs

Indian J Physiol Pharmacol. Jan-Mar 1979;23(1):44-8.

Abstract

Intravenous infusion of tender coconut water to paraldehyde and chloralose-urethane anaesthetised dogs at a rate of 0.5 ml/kg/min to a total dose of 100 ml/kg body weight decreased serum Na and increased K and Ca levels. Simultaneously, urinary Na excretion decreased and K and Ca excretion increased and there was glycosuria. Serum electrolyte changes were more prominent in paraldehyde anaesthetised dogs.
